I was thinking of having the closed-loop default as non-zero though. 
This is new functionality so it can't affect existing jobs. And this is 
where dupe suppression shines.

Current implementaion for pot files is 1 GB >> mem_saving_level, but I 
admit that might be hefty for some of the ancient stuff we are 
supporting. But I'd like it as 64 MB at least.

There's another catch though. If this figure is larger than 
-mem-file-size, then what? Bail out with error? Over-ride 
-mem-file-size? Silently ignore dupe suppression?
